Why Fly to Washington?

The nation’s capital can inspire travelers with its iconic national monuments, stimulate minds with its world-class museums and even titillate the senses with its gourmet restaurants, exhilarating nightlife and plush hotels. All it takes to embark on a vacation fit for a president is a ticket for any of the cheap flights to Washington D.C. departing from more than 100 cities nationwide.

Which Airlines Fly to Washington?

The D.C. area is served by three major airports: Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI). About 45 minutes from downtown, Dulles is the largest airfield. Though it supports over 30 airlines, United accounts for well over half of all flights and uses it as its East Coast hub. Direct flights to Dulles depart from roughly 80 U.S. cities, compared to around 70 into Reagan National.  Reagan is only three miles from central D.C. and connects to two of the city’s Metro lines through climate-controlled tunnels. US Airways is its largest carrier and handles most flights, but it also supports Continental, Delta and discount airlines AirTran and JetBlue. BWI Marshall is near Baltimore, about 45 minutes away, and is a hub for AirTran and focus city for Southwest. Direct flights from about 65 cities are available from airlines that also include United, Delta, Continental and Northwest.

Washington Flight Tips

Avoid flying to D.C during popular spring break weeks. Many students travel during these peak times for school tours and field trips. Find flight deals to Washington D.C. in late August and early September when weather is cooler and students are back in school.

Quick Travel Guide to Washington

No trip to the capital would be complete without visiting at least one or two national monuments and significant government buildings. After settling into your Washington D.C. hotel, you may be inclined to kick things off with a tour of the White House, but you should know that these free tours must be arranged at least 30 days in advance with one of your Members of Congress.

Bring your camera for a stroll through the National Mall, where you’ll find three of the city’s most recognizable landmarks: the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and between the two, the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. Show up early to the Washington Monument Lodge to request a free elevator ride ticket to the observation deck up top, where you’ll enjoy the best panoramic views of the area.

Washington D.C. is also a museum-lover’s dream: the primary facilities of the Smithsonian Institution, including the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian National Zoo, are all within easy reach. You could easily spend an entire week touring the Smithsonian’s offerings, but you won’t want to miss the Newseum, D.C.’s interactive museum of journalism, and the International Spy Museum, where exhibits reveal the history of espionage from Ancient Greece to modern-day counterterrorism.
